Opera Mini for iPhone submitted to App Store

Mobile browser features compression technology

Opera has revealed it has submitted an iPhone version of its mobile web browser, Opera Mini, to Apple's App Store.

Opera first unveiled the mobile web browser at Mobile World Congress (MWC), which took place in Barcelona in February this year.

The new mobile browser features Opera's compression technology to ensure significantly faster web page loading along with its favourite desktop features including tabs, speed dial and a password manager.

"The Opera Mini for iPhone sneak peek during MWC told us that we have something special," said Jon von Tetzchner, co-founder of Opera Software.

"Opera has put every effort into creating a customised, stylised, feature-rich and highly responsive browser that masterfully combines iPhone capabilities with Opera's renowned web experience, and the result is a high performing browser for the iPhone."

The developer is now waiting to find out whether Apple will approve the web browser and make it available in the App store.
